Both are illegal for a reason, and in both cases people think "it won't matter if I break the law... ...just this once... ...the law wasn't really created for this situation"
If your thinking that and speeding will you still be saying that when you hit the 5 year old who walks from parked cars, the cyclist on the country road or whatever.
If your thinking that and setting off a flare will you still be saying that when a helicopter is overhead. OR when on Fireworks Day you are left with your last red rocket having exhausted all your other means of signalling distress to be firing it thinking... "No-one will respond to this because even if they think its a flare they'll assume some terwat is using up their time expired flares and fireworks night"...
Being inland is no excuse.
